    Showers that began the previous night and persisted through Friday morning and afternoon ended any chance of play on the second day of the Indians' warm-up match against Leicestershire

  • Top order leads Indians' solid effort

    Fifties from Gautam Gambhir, Shikhar Dhawan and Cheteshwar Pujara lifted Indians to 333 on the first day of their tour match against Leicestershire
